The Another Mother Runner Podcast Got a Lot Cheesier!

Hi, everyone! I have some exciting news: I am one of the featured guests on the Another Mother Runner podcast this week, talking about my running history, as well as 10K training and strategies! Click here for a link to the show notes!

I would like to apologize for the unfortunate shorts and the backbendy running form in my photo (third from left); it is from a 10K two years ago and I was excitedly waving to my parents - those are my only excuses. 
Another Mother Runner was founded by two running mothers (duh), Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell. I discovered it via a Google search when I was starting to become serious about running and racing. It was the first podcast I ever listened to, one of the first running blogs I ever read, and the first training plan I ever followed (Train Like a Mother -- Own It from their second book for both my first half marathon and my first marathon). I have all three of their books (two of them signed by one or both of the authors!), and their local mother runner party in 2013 introduced me to some of my best running friends. Their Facebook page is always hopping with great topics and support, and they also sell really awesome shirts and other running items.

I'm not getting paid a cent for that above paragraph; in fact, it was only when I writing it that I realized how much my running "career" (especially the beginning) is intertwined with AMR. I also hope that it helps you understand how honored I was that Sarah choose me to represent the "speedster" side of things in the podcast. The recent U.S. Olympic trials made it very clear to me that I am not a true speedster in any way, but I was proud to play one on the podcast. I also hope it helps you understand how incredibly nervous I was to appear on the podcast! When I was recording, I felt myself getting "diarrhea of the mouth" quite often, otherwise known as "a complete inability to stop talking, even when stopping would be better for everyone involved." I hope that at least one or two interesting nuggets popped out of my mouth!
